The candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Enugu East senatorial candidate, Lawrence Ezeh, has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party Party (PDP) along with teaming supporters.
The Nation reports that Ezeh, popularly known as Prince of Mburubu, and his followers were on Sunday, December 1, received at an impressive reception by the state governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.
The senatorial candidate who was once a member of the PDP said the governor influenced his decision to return to the party.
“Before the elections, we were together; after the elections, we were also together, because you never allowed me to rest until I agreed to return to the PDP,” Ezeh said.
Governor Ugwuanyi stated that the PDP was pleased to have Ezeh return to its fold.
“Enugu State PDP is one united family. You left and you are now back. We welcome you back and say that we are happy, because you are very important to us,” the governor told Prince Ezeh.
Ezeh defected from the PDP to the APC when after he failed to secure the PDP ticket to contest Enugu East senatorial seat.
